Thread: Yo, Slarty, again!

    Default Yo, Slarty, again!

    ...I've got a small one this time...I promise...:-roll

    ...Anywho, for some odd reason, even though we installed Windows afterwards (COmputer crashed again recently)...our new HD is still recognized by Windows under the old one's name (The "Quantum Fireball")...why is that?

    ***Here's where we go off-topic, sorry!***

    ...In case you were wondering about the crash, yeah, the 'new' HD Compaq installed a few months ago after our old one crapped out ripped itself apart a few weeks ago. Should have been called the "Quantum Meatball". My theory is, since the problem was so similar to the last HD, that Compaq merely hit the old HD with a hammer a few times, re-formatted it, and put it back into our computer...we had enough of it, so we didn't bother with 'em. We just transferred our personal files to the 40 gig we had installed beforehand (lucky we did when we did), bought a new 20 gig, and ran QiuckRestore on the thang. It worked. I'm amazed. Now the only Compaq parts in our computer are the chassis and CD-ROM, which we only use when we're backing up CD's (We got an AMD mo-bo')...

    Sad part is, the 10 gig Compaq would have installed woul have been more expensive than the 20 gig we ended up buying anyway. Saved a lot of money and learned a bit about emergency computer surgury.

    Which means our system specs are now:
